Bobby Sands and the Tragedy of Northern Ireland

This book is about Bobby Sands
"Bobby Sands and the Tragedy of Northern Ireland" offers a profound exploration into the life of Bobby Sands, whose act of resistance in the form of a hunger strike resonated globally, highlighting the intense struggle of Northern Ireland. Released on September 1, 2023, this book delves into Sands' election as a Member of Parliament during his hunger strike, an event that captured more attention than royal weddings or papal visits. Author John M. Feehan presents a carefully nuanced narrative, transitioning from initial skepticism about Sands to a deep, resonant understanding of his motives and impact. This narrative not only sheds light on Sands as a symbol of the fight against imperial forces but also paints a vivid picture of the guerilla warfare turning Northern Ireland into a battleground reminiscent of Vietnam. Ideal for high school readers, this book engages with themes of racial justice and indigenous rights, prompting reflection on the power of individual resilience against oppressive systems.
